A San Francisco biotech is trying to cure HIV with the gene-editing tool CRISPR. Excision BioTherapeutics launched the first-ever CRISPR study for HIV patients on Thursday. Excision BioTherapeutics just launched the first clinical trial to see if a one-time IV infusion can effectively cure HIV. In the fall of 2021, the Food and Drug Administration OK'd Excision's plans to begin human testing, setting the stage to now start dosing HIV patients. The NIH also awarded a small research grant last August to support Excision's cofounder and Temple University researcher Kamel Khalili's work on an HIV cure.

A surveillance camera is seen near a coal-fired power plant in Shanghai, China, October 14, 2021. "Reducing emissions is not about reducing productivity, and it is not about not emitting at all," Xi was quoted by state news agency Xinhua as saying. "We must stick to the overall planning and ensure energy security, industrial supply chain security and food security at the same time as cutting carbon emissions," he said. With energy supplies still a major concern after a wave of shortages hit manufacturers last year, Xi also told Party leaders that "the gradual withdrawal of traditional energy must be based on the safe and reliable replacement by new energy." China's state planning agency also said in December that it will loosen blanket restrictions on energy consumption in order to ensure environmental targets do not erode growth.

GAZA, Jan 26 (Reuters) - Diabetics and the calorie-conscious can enjoy a richer diet at Gaza's first health food store, where cookies, sweets and other foods are prepared with a sugar substitute. Instead of sugar, she uses stevia, a sweetener derived from the leaves of the stevia plant. It is one of the sugar substitutes approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use by diabetics, who must closely monitor their blood sugar levels. Palestinian health officials said about 100,000 people suffer from diabetes in the Gaza Strip, which has a population of 2.3 million. It makes it possible to come to a guaranteed store, without having to think where to go," said Mahmoud Abu Al-Ouf, a diabetes patient.

Food prices in December 2021 increased by 6.3% from a year earlier, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics' (BLS) Consumer Price Index . In a modern economy, no one should struggle to eat because of spiking food prices. Still, we could see prices rising even further. As long as the lingering pandemic gums up supply chains and constricts the labor supply, firms may feel obligated to raise prices, especially for food. But rate rises should also help calm inflationary pressures, especially as the temporary drivers of higher food prices, including supply chain disruptions, persist.

The United Nations earlier this month appealed for $4.4 billion in humanitarian aid for Afghanistan in 2022.

Samuel Corum/Pool via REUTERSJan 25 (Reuters) - The chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives subcommittee on economic and consumer policy sent a letter on Tuesday to major U.S. meat processing companies, seeking information on rising prices and profits. Representative Raja Krishnamoorthi, the chairman of the panel, asked for information about price increases on beef, pork and chicken products, the panel said on Tuesday. Krishnamoorthi has asked for information and documents from each company by Feb. 8, explaining their decision to increase prices of their products despite rising profits. He also asked for an explanation from the companies on what they planned to do to lower prices in the coming year. The White House, hammered by Republicans over rising inflation, is scrambling to combat rising prices by clearing supply chain logjams and tackling what it views as uncompetitive practices by big companies, which are reporting big profit gains as consumers suffer.

The fact that Plenty also has a path to growing strawberries and cherry tomatoes at scale, and not just leafy greens, was another advantage, he said. In late 2020 Plenty raised funds from berry brand Driscoll’s and signed a joint development agreement to grow Driscoll’s strawberries. Mundo said once Plenty’s new farm in Compton, California comes on line later this year, it will serve leafy greens to all of the Walmart stores in the state. In May New York-based indoor vertical farming startup Bowery Farming raised $300 million in a round that put the company valuation at $2.3 billion. “What we've seen during the pandemic is they're selling everything they can produce,” Rose said about the indoor farms.

The Biden administration restricted the use of two monoclonal antibody drugs for Covid-19 because they are unlikely to be effective against the Omicron variant. The drugs— Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc.’s REGEN-COV and Eli Lilly & Co.’s bamlanivimab and etesevimab—shouldn’t be used in any U.S. states, territories or jurisdictions at this time, the Food and Drug Administration said Monday.

That's why eating is a thread that runs through even a short stay in the Thai capital. "Tourists want to taste what Thai food is all about — they want to try the traditional recipes," he said. Snacking is a huge part of Thai eating culture. For a break from Thai food, travelers can head to Yen Akat Road — one of the area's most happening thoroughfares — for beef tartare and truffle risotto at Cagette Canteen & Deli. Mango sticky rice is a simple but famous Thai dessert made with glutinous rice, coconut milk, ripe mangos and mung beans.

Plenty uses vertical farming to grow a high volume of leafy greens year-round. Walmart said Tuesday that it is investing in vertical farming company Plenty and plans to carry the start-up's leafy greens in all California stores later this year. Vertical farming comes with several key benefits compared with traditional farms, according to a report by Morgan Stanley Research on the future of food. San Francisco-based Plenty is one of several start-ups involved with vertical farming. Starting later this year, Walmart's 250 stores in California will have leafy greens grown in a vertical farm in the city of Compton in southern Los Angeles.

President Biden says he wants to increase healthcare access. But this is hard to square with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ unprecedented proposal this month to restrict Medicare payment for a class of novel Alzheimer’s treatments. The CMS recommendation follows the controversy over Food and Drug Administration approval last summer of Biogen ’s Alzheimer’s treatment Aduhelm. The monoclonal antibody clears amyloid plaque in the brain, a hallmark of the disease. It is the first treatment shown in clinical trials to slow Alzheimer’s progression.

Whether a participant ate comfort food, any food or no food didn’t make a difference in the person’s mood. “If you eat comfort food you might feel better, but if you didn’t eat it, you would also feel better just with time going by,” said Dr. Mann. About half the patients were given nutrition counseling for a Mediterranean-style diet, as well as food baskets containing sample foods, recipes and meal plans. Your glial cells, for example, which make up a substantial portion of the brain, are dependent on omega-3 fats. Minerals including zinc, selenium and magnesium provide the foundation for cell activity and brain tissue and the synthesis of neurotransmitters that directly affect mood.

Faced with climbing food and labor costs, restaurant chains are tweaking their value meals, trying to strike a balance between driving traffic growth in slower months and maintaining profit margins. But now chains are also raising prices on their value meals or focusing on promoting menu items that are experiencing lower inflation. In July through September, 17% more restaurant operators were offering value meals on their menus, compared with the same time a year ago, according to Technomic Ignite data. The cost of breakfast value meals climbed 19.6%, and snack value meals saw their prices rise 11.5%. However, the overall average price of value meals fell by 1.3% compared with the year-ago period, the researcher said.

REUTERS/Mike SegarJan 24 (Reuters) - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is likely to restrict the use of COVID-19 antibody treatments from Regeneron (REGN.O) and Eli Lilly (LLY.N) as they are ineffective against the Omicron variant, the Washington Post reported on Monday. The FDA action will involve revising the emergency use authorizations for the monoclonal antibodies, the report said, citing two senior administration health officials. However, the agency will not revoke the emergency use authorizations in case the drugs work against a future COVID-19 variant, according to the report. GSK and Vir Biotech are boosting production of their drug to help meet soaring demand in the United States.

The FDA is set to stop monoclonal antibody treatments, according to multiple reports. The treatments are thought to be a ineffective remedy against the Omicron COVID-19 variant. Bloomberg reported that the drugs made by the two companies haven't been proven to effectively treat patients infected with the new, highly transmissible Omicron variant. Antibody treatments from GlaxoSmithKline and Vir Biotechnology, however, appear to be effective and will remain in use, the report said. The agency estimates that the highly transmissible Omicron variant is responsible for over 99% of all COVID-19 cases in the country, according to the latest figures from January 15.
